History is Made at Night is great. Strange Cargo is interesting.

After 11 days of my initial 14-day trial, I have watched some 20 films (plus a handful of shorts). My watchlist currently has around 50 titles on it.

Other than the occasional false start (never more than five or six seconds in), I've had no technical issues at all.

I'm probably going to stick with 'Struck for a while.

How are you watching? Computer, Roku, ... ?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

And as soon as I posted about having no technical difficulties, I encountered a period last night when I couldn't get anything to play. (And believe me, I was REALLY looking for a distraction last night. Ended up watching the terrible Will Forte/National Lampoon movie on Netflix.)

Slightly sketchy today, but I did get through two (long) movies.)

THE STORY SO FAR

After five weeks or so, I've watched more than 60 titles (including a half-dozen shorts), with only intermittent connection issues, most of which have been of the "stop after five seconds and restart" variety.

I have to say I'm extremely pleased with what this service has provided me.

FilmStruck just added Warner Bros. Classics, which are my favorite movies. Very tempted.

Yeah, I was just going through the long list of Bette Davis movies that I assume they just added, many of which I haven't seen. Oy.

That's super fantastic news. I haven't used my subscription as much as I wanted to because I don't have a great way of watching it right now, but once I move for school I imagine I'll be getting my money's worth.

That may be the final push to get me to join.  I have to make a choice, and Filmstruck looks much better than Netflix right now.
